Snapped is an American true crime television series that airs on Oxygen. Snapped debuted on August 6, 2004, and is produced by Jupiter Entertainment.
This series depicts high profile or bizarre cases of women accused of murder. Each episode outlines whether the motivation for murder was revenge against a cheating husband or lover, a large insurance payoff, or the ending to years of abuse, with each murder's circumstances as unique as the women profiled. A few episodes have centered on male perpetrators, but these have been rare in the series' history. However, a large number of episodes have featured men who conspired with the central female perpetrator in the crime.
The series features non-fiction narratives of women (and men as co-conspirators, or in a very few episodes, as the central perpetrators) who have committed murder or attempted murder or have been accused of committing or attempting to commit murder. Often the target is the individual's spouse. The program is edited in a documentary style, using a central voice-over narration by actress Jody Flader, as well as interviews with people in possession of first-hand knowledge of the case, including law-enforcement officials, lawyers, journalists, friends and family members of both the victims and the accused, and at times the criminals or victims themselves.
